Every day we ask influential politicos to send us their top three bullet points that are driving the day's conversation inside and outside Washington.

RedState.Com Editor Erick-Woods Erickson:
– The Wall Street Journal is calling conservatives "hobbits." The Weekly Standard is calling them "pro-Obama conservatives." John Boehner is telling conservatives to get their rears in line to vote. Interestingly, a lot of conservatives say if Boehner took out his super committee he'd get more votes.
– Now the Congressional Budget Office says Harry Reid's plan actually cuts more money in the next two years than John Boehner's plan.
– If that's not bad enough, there is a growing sense on Wall Street that no matter what happens in Washington our credit rating is tanked. It might make you think Washington is broken, but remember that gridlock is a feature not a bug in our constitution. The bug is Washington expanding the commerce clause beyond its original meaning, without amending the constitution, to use it to spend on every program Washington politicians' hearts desire.
